E.K. (Elisabeth) Belsher is a freelance illustrator living and working in Vancouver, British Columbia. A former high school biology teacher with a passion for storytelling, Elisabeth recently completed a BFA in illustration at Emily Carr University of Art + Design. She was awarded the Governor General's Academic Medal for achieving the highest academic standing in the Bachelor of Fine Arts program.

Elisabeth works primarily in traditional media such as ink and watercolour. She loves good stories with compelling characters, and is currently exploring the world of narrative illustration for children and young adults. However, science never really leaves you, so from time to time Elisabeth can’t resist doing a scientific drawing for the sheer pleasure of focusing on anatomical detail.
